Description Joshua Jensen 2001-08-21 19:07:08 UTC
I'm not sure if this is an installer, kudzu, or Xconfigurator bug... but
the cause looks to be the same.

Description of Problem:

The installer recognizes my Diamond Multimedia Systems FIRE GL 1000 PRO
card as a ELSA Gloria Synergy card (with only 512k of memory!).
After installation, /etc/sysconfig/hwconf contains (among other entries):

class: VIDEO
bus: PCI
detached: 0
driver: Card:ELSA GLoria Synergy
desc: "Texas Instruments|TVP4020 [Permedia 2]"
vendorId: 104c
deviceId: 3d07
subVendorId: 1092
subDeviceId: 0146
pciType: 1

However, lspci -v shows me (among other entries):

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Texas Instruments TVP4020 [Permedia 2]    
(rev $        Subsystem: Diamond Multimedia Systems FIRE GL 1000 PRO
        Flags: bus master, 66Mhz, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 11
        Memory at e6800000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=128K]
        Memory at e6000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8M]
        Memory at e5800000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8M]
        Expansion ROM at e77f0000 [disabled] [size=64K]
        Capabilities: [40] AGP version 1.0

Running Xconfigurator with the --card "Diamond Fire GL 1000 PRO" option
works beautifully, and corrects the problem... but it would be nice to have
this card recognized automatically, even in the installer.

When in the installer, can you go to VC2 and run ddcprobe?  It would be helpful
if you could attach the output of that.

Comment 2 Joshua Jensen 2001-08-22 02:43:13 UTC
Ok... ddcprobe provides:

VESA 2.0 detected.
Memory installed = 8 * 64k blocks = 512kb
Supported standard modes:
EDID read no supported by video card.


Comment 3 Joshua Jensen 2001-09-02 20:03:33 UTC
This problem still exists in RC2.

Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2001-09-06 00:52:19 UTC
Bill -- the pcitable in kudzu is mapping to the non-generic card here

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2001-09-06 02:31:35 UTC
That's not a problem; it doesn't need to go to the specific entry.

Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2001-09-06 02:38:18 UTC
Actually, Bill just made this change in kudzu
